    Mr. Jepson, London
    Thence by family descent

    The present work is most probably a sketch made by Cundall for his larger painting The Coronation Procession of King George VI, 12 May 1937 (The Royal Collection, no. 405966), exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1938 (no.163), where acquired by Queen Mary on behalf of the Royal Collection. As in the larger work, this example depicts a view from the top of Admiralty Arch looking down onto the Coronation Procession with the Golden State Coach at its head entering Trafalgar Square, looking towards the National Gallery and St. Martin-in-the-Fields.

    A signed letter by Cundall to Mr. Jepson discussing the picture and dated 27 September 1971 accompanies the lot.
